Power cycling algorithm using the MMA73x0L 3-axis linear accelerometer

Posted: 18 Jun 2007 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:3-axis accelerometer? linear accelerometer? power cycling algorithm?

This article by Freescale's Kimberly Tuck describes techniques to minimize the power consumption of the MMA73x0L linear 3-axis accelerometer sensor while retaining the desired resolution and response time. The benefits of power cycling the accelerometer device are seen from the overall decreased power consumption of the device. This is extremely important in battery-powered handheld electronic devices.
